None of the reports I've seen mention the depth at which it is located. It could become quite an attraction if it's at a depth within range of recreational scuba divers.

According to wikipeidia's section on the Zepplin, Polish naval divers entered the the hull to confirm its identity.

If it is truly that shallow, then the Zepplin will become Europes premier diving attraction for the next decade...
